After found the perfect drivers (jbeam 425 tour and epon 152) for me, now is time to search for woods or utility to fit in the gap between 3 wood and 4 iron. Currently I have 13*,14*, 15* 3 wood that I use, also have taylormade 18* 5 wood I use sometimes. So last night when I was at range, I tried a very ugly club (the look of it, for me is one of the most ugly club I have ever hit), epon 901 22*. I really hate the look of it, I mean I don't even want to look it again!! BUT, when I hit it for the 1st time, the ball just fly!! WOW! I was like no fxxking way!!it was the easiest club to hit!! I put the ball in a divot,same result, uphill, downhill, any lie, the ball just fly! BUT I just hate the look of it.
Now I am in dilemma, should I gO for epon 901 or should I go for a new 5 wood? By the way I am hitting my 5 wood over 200M without any problem. Would the epon 901 19* easy to hit as the 22*? I am also considering the RC 304p 5 wood (BST ). For the price of the RC , I could get both epon 901 19 and 22, any suggestion or comment?Thx

  • What's in the Bag?:
    Mizuno MP 611 w Nunchuk 44"
    Epon AF901, AF301 KBS C Taper Stiff
    210KGX 50deg, TM ATV Jap. 56 & 64 deg.
    Gripmaster wraps, rib on top.
well, I love my 19deg 901, with same steel shaft as my irons. It's obviously a big blobby iron compared to my Epon 301ís, but it's not as disturbing to me as a hybrid (!) which is why i chose it over those spawns of the devil.

Before the Epon, i used a Ping HL 2 iron - so, relatively speaking, it's gorgeous!

Well the 22 is much much easier than the 19
Also think that get what's easier to hit and what suits your
Eye. I use to game the 22 deg but can hit my 4 iron pretty
Even if the 22 goes longer I don't need that yardage. I replaced my 9
With a 20 trc. Couldn't be happier with my decision

Depending on the number of wedges you carry or your priority I would say
Its in between 3 wood and your longest iron wether it's a 3/4 iron or hybrid.
Nowadays some peopleopt to carry a hybrid instead of a 5w. More versatile
From a variety of lies
